It seems like everyone has been reviewing this product lately, so I thought I would offer my two cents on the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. I got it for about $6 at Walmart, but I believe they also have it at Target, Ulta, CVS, etc. The product claims to blur your pores to make them less visible, but I think it achieves more than that.
The product is clear and has a slightly silica-type feel to it, similar to Smashbox’s regular face primer.
I really like this product. I don’t apply it all over my face, though, just to my nose and cheeks. I press the product into my pores, instead of rubbing it in like I might do with other face primers. A little product goes a long way, so you don’t need very much to get the results you’re looking for. This product, once pressed or lightly rubbed in, makes my skin feel very smooth and it does diminish the look of my pores. It doesn’t erase them or diminish them perhaps more than other primers would, but I do think it’s a very nice product, especially for its price point. I’ve noticed that it does help prolong the life of my concealer and foundation, although the packaging doesn’t claim it will do that. I just really like this product, and I’d recommend it to someone who’s looking to diminish the look of their pores. For $6, I think it’s a great value. I have combination to dry skin, and it works great for me, but if you have mostly oily skin, I’m not sure if you’ll like the consistency.
